Book Title: Death Comes for the Archbishop

Author: Willa Cather

Leader: Marlene Jensen

Book Overview

Willa  Cather's best known novel is an epic--almost mythic--story of a single  human life lived simply in the silence of the southwestern desert. In  1851 Father Jean Marie Latour comes to serve as the Apostolic Vicar to  New Mexico. What he finds is a vast territory of red hills and tortuous  arroyos, American by law but Mexican and Indian in custom and belief. In  the almost forty years that follow, Latour spreads his faith in the  only way he knows--gently, all the while contending with an unforgiving  landscape, derelict and sometimes openly rebellious priests, and his own  loneliness. Out of these events, Cather gives us an indelible vision of  life unfolding in a place where time itself seems suspended.
